High-Level Panel on Water Diplomacy
Since 2018, SIWI has organized an annual High-Level Panel on Water Diplomacy to draw attention to the role of water for peace and to bring together different actors.
The event serves as an important platform for knowledge exchange and collaboration.
On 21 September 2020 this event was held with high-profile speakers from:
- EcoPeace Middle East
- The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs
- The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO)
- Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK)
Participants reflected on challenges from the diplomatic, security, climate research, and civil society perspectives.
During World Water Week 2019, a High-Level Panel on Water Diplomacy was held on the topic Managing Water in Trying Times: Inclusive Water Diplomacy.
The topic of the 2018 High-Level Panel on Water Diplomacy was how water diplomacy can be more extensively used in the future. The topic was also discussed in a SIWI Sofa interview during World Water Week.
